Author Biography

Matt and Nick Jackson of the wrestling tag team, the "Young Bucks," remember growing up being the smallest kids in class. It bothered them at times, but soon learned that height did not matter. What mattered was, how hard they were willing to work to achieve their dreams. Although still not the biggest, Matt and Nick Jackson travel the world as professional wrestler, living their dreams and inspiring fans. Dylan Coburn is an artist who draws for a living. His creative talents include production and storyboarding in the comic and movie world. As a little boy, he drew so often that his fingers were calloused and indelibly colored from pencil and ink. He's also done his fair share of Wrestling, and now reserves his activity for daily bouts with his son, Zac.
